The caffeine and B Vitamins from Viter Energy Mints and Gum gets absorbed into your body much faster than it would from a beverage like coffee or an energy drink.
The reason is because the caffeine and B Vitamins in the mints and gum dissolve in your mouth when you consume them, and then get absorbed into your body via the glands under your tongue (sublingual) and in your cheeks (buccal).
Drinks don't do this because they are processed by the body's digestive system first before you feel the effects from them.
Because of sublingual and buccal absorption, you'll feel the boost from the mints and gum fast. So we recommend when first trying Viter Energy products to start with 1 piece, wait 20 minutes to see how you feel, and then have another piece if you want more energy.
For all Viter Energy products, 1 serving is 1 piece.
The caffeine and B Vitamins in Viter Energy products get absorbed into your body faster than the caffeine from drinks, so at first try 1 mint or 1 piece of gum, wait 20 minutes to see how you feel, and then have another piece if you want more energy.
Caffeine is great, we're huge fans, but we also believe it has to be consumed carefully.
